Under my “top searches” this morning you’ll see this lovely gem:
BRB, lol-ing for days. Dramatic much? But then again, who doesn’t feel like they’re being tested on Monday mornings? I have a hard time with them every week, and it’s not like it’s some big surprise that Monday is coming. You’d think by this point in my adult life I would get over it.
The bad news: This weekend my iPhone was lost at sea. It would be a much better story if my phone really did get lost in the ocean but alas, no. Instead of securing it neatly in the designated cell phone pocket of my purse I just tossed it in there. Since my purse is full of stuff that meant it was sitting right on top of everything and took a flying leap into the toilet when I put my bag over my shoulder and went to leave the stall. Despite packing it in rice as quickly as I could, the phone did not make it.
In loving memory. In lieu of flowers, please dedicate your workouts to my phone’s memory. And please send me your resulting calorie expenditure. I’ll also accept sephora gift cards, if that’s all you can contribute. And the details on my sparkly iPhone case are here.
The good news: I just transferred all my pictures to my computer last week and have my contacts backed up in the cloud. And since I’m eligible to upgrade no real losses were suffered. I sure wasn’t planning to buy a new phone this month but this is a really good outcome for an unfortunate situation.
The bad news: This morning I woke up with a really painful sore throat. Yes, this is approximately the 10,000th time I’ve been sick this year. Yes, I did spend the vast majority of my weekend lying around doing very little. Yes, I have been sleeping like a normal human recently. So no, I have NO EFFING IDEA why I am sick AGAIN.
Ahem. Have you met my BFF, OJ?
The good news: My tonsils are not red or swollen or spotty which means this is probably not a big deal. I’m hopeful it’s just allergy related. Even if it’s a severe allergy thing that’s a million times better than being actually sick again.
The good news: This weekend I made the most perfect chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made in my life. I’m sure you know what cookies look like but if we’re not already friends on Instagram go over and follow me while you admire the picture I posted there. They weren’t exactly perfect because I only had unsalted butter (yes, it matters) but they were very close. When I’ve had a chance to test my new tricks at least once more I’ll definitely share my tips! Now if I only I knew some people who’d be willing to taste my experiments…
The good news: I started watching Breaking Bad last week and I’m already halfway through (shh, yes that’s good news, I’m letting my body rest!). I hope this means I’ve made it past the hard parts (I’ve had a lot of people tell me they struggled in the middle). The last two episodes I watched were really good so it’s been very entertaining if nothing else.
The good news: I did some crafts this weekend. After a long hiatus I actually got inspired to pull out some of the projects I’ve been in the middle of for a while. One of them looks a bit like this:
I’ve had a few of the yarn balls from Maureen’s shower hanging out in my apartment all lonely-like for almost a year now (since I tossed the ones that didn’t match my color scheme, I mean. Side note: these things are wickedly satisfying to crush). Yesterday I finally made the companions so they wouldn’t look quite so out of place.
The potential bad news: I left the yarn balls to dry on my balcony. It’s now raining. There’s still a chance I can save them so my fingers are crossed! Maybe it won’t rain too hard?
Overall, I think I like the way this list added up. And hey, who really complains about getting a new phone? I’m treating myself to another iPhone so it’s not like I have any reason to be upset. Let’s just hope this sore throat turns out to be nothing and I’ll be a very happy kid.
How was your weekend?
